What is strategic management?

Strategic management is an essential component of company growth and survival and encompasses two main components:

  • Strategic analysis, i.e. identification of major trends and sources of opportunities:
  • ‘External analysis’ consists of identifying the forces that constrain a firm –be it from the industry or from competition- and determining the paths of action in order to reach success; 
  • and ‘Internal analysis’ refers to identifying performance leverages within a firm by assessing the available resources and determining paths of performance.Structure and organization, i.e. how a company is designed and manages projects. This includes central functions such as planning, management control and information systems. It also deals with employees’ commitment, corporate values and culture.

In short, Strategic management is the art of correctly positioning a firm in a turbulent environment in order to map out a path of unique and unmatchable excellence. It requires a great command of analytical frameworks and a rigorous mind.

The MSc Strategic Communication offers a cross-disciplinary education to current or aspiring communication leaders who wish to learn how to design, plan and implement effective and sound communication strategies that fulfil an organisation's mission, vision and long-term objectives.Through a combination of research-driven knowledge, practical skills, and professional insights, the programme prepares students for a career in business, public and third-sector institutions or in communication consultancy.Business firms, public institutions and non-profit organisations operate today in an increasingly complex environment marked by hyper-digitalisation, media fragmentation, ambiguous market and political conditions at global levels, and growing public scepticism. In such context, there is growing market demand for communication experts who can help organisations to (re)build trust, enhance reputation and, more in general, realise their strategic goals.The MSc Strategic Communication at the University of Liverpool in London offers a cross-disciplinary education with a distinctive focus on:1.How corporate leaders, governments, public institutions, NGOs and even celebrities make use of narrative and argument to build consensus and dialogue with stakeholders and to (re)construct their identity, reputation and trustworthiness, especially in crisis situations.2.The role of digital media, particularly social media, in enhancing strategic communication and informing strategic planning.3.The contexts and practices of strategic communication (e.g. financial communication and investor relations; political campaigns; crisis management; branding, policy change, takeover and mergers): how they are shaped through discourse and how discourse affects them.The programme combines a range of conceptual and practical skills which are crucial for successfully managing a variety of strategic communication activities, such as defining and effectively sharing the mission, vision and values of an organisation, responding to a crisis, launching new products and services or supporting strategic initiatives like mergers, event promotions, and campaigns for political elections, health prevention or policy change.Students will learn how to translate organisational goals into communication objectives, to analyse situations by identifying and segmenting the relevant stakeholder groups, as well as regulatory constraints and ethical issues; to design spoken and written messages that are at the same time sound, persuasive and compliant; to exploit the potential offered by established communication technologies and new digital media to effectively engage stakeholders.Practical projects include a variety of activities like designing and delivering effective public speeches, building a digital media campaign and the writing of digital communications for live briefs.Besides classroom modules, a dedicated seminar involving communication experts from the Public Relations and Investor Relations industry offers the unique opportunity to familiarise yourself with the relevant professional contexts and to closely interact with specialists in the sectors. Through the final project, students will engage with an in-depth analysis of a case-study in strategic communication.Modules are organised and delivered in blocks of intensive full-day teaching. By enrolling as part-time students, experienced professionals in the London area can more easily reconcile classroom attendance with work commitments.More information on current activities involving staff and students can be found in our blog Masters of Strategic Communication.Read more about the Department of Communication and Media on their webpages, including the internationally acclaimed research which feeds insights directly into teaching.

This specialisation will focus on the strategic and visionary elements of what might be called the ‘new’ planning enterprise.

As the preparations for the New Urban Agenda by UN Habitat III signals, the agenda of urban planners in the 21st century will become tighter. Cities and city regions will continue growing in size and function. Challenges derive directly from ‘external’ processes like globalisation, climate change and migration. The city and city region is also inscribed as central element into the growth model of the modern society.

These challenges translate into the domain of planning, with newly emerging forms of collective plan-making and new governance arrangements taking shape. In a positive sense, urban development is negotiated and created in urban future laboratories. How can planners deal with these changing circumstances, and add value to both the bottom-up emerging local initiatives and revise the top-down approaches towards managing spatial development.

How can they safeguard common values of a shared city or regional identity, a functioning ‘spatial fabric,’ or an equitable access to public services? These and other questions are addressed in the Master's specialisation in Strategic Spatial Planning.

Master's specialisation in Strategic Spatial Planning

The Master’s specialisation in Strategic Spatial Planning is taught at Nijmegen School of Management. It has a course load of 60 EC* (one-year). The structure is as follows:

Communicate strategically

Effective and efficient communication is a core requirement for the success of organisations in all sectors and in all nations. However, it continues to be a challenging goal for many organisations. The MA Strategic Communication responds to the growing world-wide demand for independent thinking communication strategists with the knowledge and skills to enable organisations to communicate effectively in dynamic, diverse environments. It is for people who appreciate that communication practice needs to evolve away from a media savvy tactical focus on press, publicity and information provision to a business savvy strategic focus on relationship management and organisational positioning. Graduates will be able to help organisations manage their stakeholder relationships through innovative strategic communication.

Develop professionally

This course is designed for graduates who aim to start, or develop, a career in strategic communication, internal communication, public relations, or corporate communication management. This course will not only add value to your CV but will also benefit your future employers. Participants have become communication professionals in private enterprise, government, or not-for-profit organisations. They join in-house communication teams and communication consultancies.

Stretch intellectually

This course is for people who want to develop their capacity to think strategically and are ready for a new and personally stretching intellectual challenge. Subjects studied include principles of strategic communication and the impact of technology on communication. You will study rhetoric as the art of speech, and theories and concepts relating to internal communication. The course covers aspects of the management of strategic communication and research methods.

The MA Strategic Communication course team is based in the Division of Applied Communication. The team members are keen, enthusiastic about their subjects and committed to engaging students in the study of communication concepts and theory. The team value the maxim that 'there's nothing as practical as a good theory' and are committed to enable you to develop insight into how theory can be applied to improve communication practice. Our team has international experience in communication practice and an active research culture. They contribute to books, journals and conferences on a range of communication topics.
